synopsis

 

A love story full of obstacles: Mangai is a poor Christian farmer, Azizah is a Muslim and daughter of the village chief. The clever young farmer is willing to do anything possible or impossible to win Azizah's heart against all odds.

 

E GO BETTER is a fictional miniseries that teaches financial literacy in a fun way. The first season is about how Mangai and his friends are trying to get a microfinance loan to build a storage facility for their potatoes. At the same time, a windy businessman is up to mischief and lures with big promises to invest in his miracle bank. In the second season, the farmers learn how to use microinsurance to spread business risks across multiple shoulders.
